In one Blogger event I had attended, my Beauty Blogger friends and I were talking about our favorite skin care products and a lot swore by Shiseido's Ibuki range, which immediately reminded me that I haven't posted my final thoughts about this skin care range yet, so 'ere goes!
I've used the entire line for nearly five months (except the Facial Cleanser which lasted for about 1 1/2 months only. Still, that's pretty economical for a facial wash considering I use it twice a day!) and I still have a lot of the Refining Moisturizer Enriched left, which goes to show you that this is one economical line. As with all of Shiseido's products, you would only need a small amount (always!) to cover your entire face!

Three weeks of using Shiseido Ibuki
So my skin looks and feels smoother and healthier now than before. The texture on the side of my nose showed tremendous improvement in the first few weeks of usage, but stopped responding by the second month.
Some of my Beauty Blogger friends love Ibuki so much for they claim that it really renews and heals skin by controlling breakouts. However, I couldn't say the same thing for myself because during my usage, I would still experience my normal breakouts so I still had to use Salicylic Acid, albeit this line did not aggravate it in any way and the zits would still heal faster than before.
This is what I loved about this line: My overall skin tone and texture continued to look healthier day after day (despite the recurring zits) and I finally got to see what 'transparent skin' really looks like: It's naturally glowing, looks more even, it just bounces back easily, and is quite resilient-my facial skin gets scratches easily, but when I started using Ibuki, that problem occurred less and less.
To me, it worked as a deep nourishing skin care line. If breakouts aren't my problem and I just need something to keep my skin super healthy, I would probably make this as one of my HG skin care lines. The Softening Concentrate, I'm willing to repurchase as I felt that that really helped my skin! If you're using the Ibuki line, share your experience with me! If you're about to purchase, I hope it works for you! :)
